Ring of Honor was set to crown a new Women's World Champion this year before things were delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic. The Quest for Gold tournament was scheduled to start on April 24 and feature names such as Angelina Love, Session Moth Martina, Mandy Leon, and more.
ROH was also bringing in non-contracted talent for the event to fill out the 16-woman bracket.
Despite the April 24 event being canceled, ROH still paid announced talent for the show. Katarina, Heather Monroe, and more all took to social media to express their gratitude for ROH for paying them for the event.
...on a related note I would like to express gratitude for having just received a check for a show that is not taking place from a company I don’t have a contract with- but was looking forward to finally working with... namely @ringofhonor with a thoughtful and classy move. --— katarina ---- (@katarinasinfamy) April 15, 2020
